Subject: Good show,
and the most hilarious rendition of Born Cross Eyed I've ever heard. Not a bad recording.
Reviewer: doug_the_dude - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 3, 2013
Subject: essential companion piece to 2/2
sounds like a would-be Spanish Jam after Born Cross-Eyed...

GMLS is a lot of fun, but the supremo moment of this show is the last half of The Eleven, then melted right down. Yow!

Subject: Next "Official Release" Disc 2?
If you read my review of the 2/2 show, everything I said goes ditto for this show. Amazing recording, great mix, and stellar performance. These 2 should be released as a 2 CD set. In some ways I find them even more enjoyable than the 2/14 show that has already been released (although that one's a 5 star must as well!)

The Eleven just smokes along crashing into a ripping feedback. Gorgeous.

Subject: About as good as it gets...
... and that is certainly saying a mouthful. Specifics have been covered already by the previous reviewers, so let me just second that. New Potatoe Caboose will blow you out of yer seat. Dig the blues leads Jerry treats us to on "It Hurts Me Too". If you like the blues, you'll love the blues as Mr. Garcia weaves us a musical basket of tears that lasts longer than the 4 minutes playing time, this one will stick with me for awhile. Oops! Don't leave out the NASTY harmonica break!

God Bless The Grateful Dead

The Archive is the best thing to ever happen to me in terms of music (except live shows, duh!)

Subject: Amazing
I hate to say it but I think I like this performance better than the previous night (besides the Clementine). Great to hear the band working through the arrangements of some of these tunes. I especially loved NPC and a rare Born Cross-Eyed. Excellent 11 also. One of the shortest Dark Stars you'll ever hear.

As always, thanks to Charlie Miller

Subject: no bastards here
the night before is great, i'll agree with that. and it has the best Clementine of the only 6 played, but for my $$ this night is actually better. Great TOO>Potato to kick things off, and great DS>China>11 to end, esp. 11, which sounds like it has a little more wings than the others of this early '68 period. recommended, along with 2/2, of course.
Reviewer: Rings&Bells - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 16, 2009
Subject: Not Quite as Good as the Night Before...
...but, that said, this is one great show! An Other One suite with the debut of the "standard" lyrics kicks things off and includes a very good Cryptical reprise (the best of the tour) and segues into one of the best New Potato's of the tour. Schoolgirl is my favorite version to date with fantastic harmonica work by Pigpen and a different take on the "box back knitties" rap. The Eleven-> Feedback that closes out this show absolutely soars, one of my favorites. Charlie Miller has made this sound fantastic and added a track or two to make this more complete. Solid A

I've never enjoyed this show quite as much as the previous night's performance, but though a touch of hiss still remains, this is indeed a significant cleanup containing some very special music.

Neat Thirteen Jam style outro during Caboose and the China/Eleven Jam features some very sick leads from Jer. (98+ pts)
